Martin Lawrence Net Worth 2021 – Rich, Richer, Martin Lawrence!
American actor and comedian Martin Lawrence has an estimated net worth of $110 million. Lawrence started the 21st century with a bang: he starred in Big Momma’s House, the story of an FBI agent posing as a portly Southern matriarch, and grossed more than $100 million despite consistently negative reviews. The success of that film propelled Lawrence ever closer to the coveted $20 million club and cemented his reputation as one of comics biggest stars for years to come.
Lawrence was born in Frankfurt, Germany on April 16, 1965, and eventually settled with his family in suburban Maryland around his sixth birthday. Soon after, his father left the family; Lawrence claims he started his career as a comedian by cheering up his mother, who was forced to support her six children as a cashier at various department stores. He attended Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Landover, MD, played sports and stuck to comedy. He even agreed to stop acting in art class in exchange for performing his stand-up routine in front of the other students.
Soon after graduating, the goggle-eyed actor got a chance to appear on Star Search, earning him a role in 1985’s What’s Happening Now! Lawrence continued to hone his frenetic streak and had two big hits in 1989: a supporting role on Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing and a hosting role on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam. In the early ’90s, Lawrence continued to have high-profile roles on House Party, House Party 2 and Boomerang, among others, before landing his own series on Fox in 1992, aptly named Martin. The series was a huge hit, its risqué humor making it a top-rated show for more than five years and earning it two NAACP Image Awards, though some critics accused Lawrence of promoting an image of an over-sexualized, insensitive black man.
On July 10, 2010, Lawrence married his longtime girlfriend Shamika Gibbs at his Beverly Hills home.
